How does Sorbact® work?
The Sorbact method is based on the knowledge that hydrophobic (water-repellent) compounds bind to each other. Most bacteria and fungi causing disease are hydrophobic and therefore bind to Sorbact.

Range of application.
Treatment of various types of unclean, purulent, septic and infected sores, such as diabetic ulcers, pressure sores, leg ulcers and cancer sores. Sorbact binds bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococci, E. coli, and Pseudomonas, and fungi, such as Candida albicans.

When should Sorbactâ not be used?
Sorbact must not be used at the same time as greasy ointments and creams, as the effect is impaired by such combination treatment.

To bear in mind when using the product.
The green side facing the sore.
Sorbact is meant for single use.
To achieve the best possible results, it is important to follow the instructions for use.

Adverse effects.
There are no known adverse effects.

Instructions for use:

It is important that the Sorbact gauze comes into contact with the sore (the green side facing the sore).
Daily dressing is recommended when the sore shows clinical symptoms of infection. If the sore is septic, then the change of dressing should depend on how purulent the sore is.
For example: daily dressing during the first week, then dressing every other or every third day.

  • Press the surface of the sore lightly with a round Sorbact swab. Preferably change the swab several times.
  • Cover with Sorbact absorbent dressing.
  • Fasten the dressing with normal adhesive plaster or bandage.

Deep sores

  • Cleanse the sore in accordance with local instructions.
  • Press the surface of the sore lightly with a round Sorbact swab. Preferably change the swab several times
  • Place a compress, ribbon gauze or round swab in the sore and cover with Sorbact absorbent dressing.
  • N.B. Always leave part of the dressing sticking out of a deep sore so that it can be changed easily.
